Yes. However, if you choose to oppose the Application, you must complete and file and serve a Response to Divorce Application. A common objection is a dispute in respect to the actual date of separation.
Because there is only one basis for a divorce (i.e. - irretrievable breakdown), and how it is evidenced, contested divorces are rare. Unless the separation is less than 12 months or there is a real prospect of a reconciliation, you cannot contest a divorce. You should obtain legal advice on these matters.
Sometimes if the court is not satisfied that proper child support is being paid or that the children are not seeing both parents, a divorce can be delayed.
